Download it once and read it . Cormac McCarthy? Did he ever write a book titled The Counselor? Either I missed that or it's a real stinker everybody'd rather forget about.
Though I have given all praise, there is one action sequence that is slightly hard to navigate through in my opinion because the characters are not named. She is watching through the binoculars and writing on a pad on a clipboard. He holds it to his mouth and breathes on it and looks at it again. He is somewhat dark. Las reflexiones, como siempre, brillantes. So you can go to Communion. Another key McCarthy preoccupation lies in subverting codes and conventions — much as he re-evaluated the Western in Blood Meridian and the Border Trilogy , you could argue that The Counselor is basically a particularly brutal satire on crime movies.

There is an iron pipe at the right rear of the truck bed mounted vertically in a pair of collars so that it can slide up and down and the man threads the wire through a hole in the pipe and pulls it taut and stops it from sliding back by clamping the wire with a pair of vise grips. Then he walks back out to the road and takes a tape measure from his belt and measures the height of the wire from the road surface.
He goes back to the truck and lowers the iron pipe in its collars and clamps it in place again with a threaded lever that he turns by hand against the vertical rod. He goes out to the road and measures the wire again and comes back and wraps the end of the wire through a heavy three-inch iron ring and walks to the front of the truck, where he pulls the wire taut and wraps it around itself to secure the ring at the end of the wire and then pulls the ring over a hook mounted in the side rail of the truck bed.
He stands looking at it.
He strums the wire with his fingers. It gives off a deep resonant note. He unhooks the ring and walks the wire to the rear of the truck until it lies slack on the ground and in the road. He lays the ring on the truck bed and goes around and takes a walkie-talkie from a work bag in the cab of the truck and stands in the open door of the truck, listening.
He checks his watch by the dome light in the cab. View all posts by Biblioklept. Like Like. No doubt he will. The only hope I have is that Cormac was frequently present on set to make sure things were going well, so those scenes might turn out decent.
Scott can always fuck up the other scenes and massacre the film in the editing room, though. My guess is that McCarthy did this for the money.
Someone had the script, but they could only get their hands on it for a day or so before they had to return it, which explains all the weird formatting and spelling it had. They may have added to it, they may not have gotten everything down. Who knows. This published excerpt is almost word for word with the leaked script, which has me feeling bummed out.
Photos of the actors on set match the description of characters from the script down to their clothes, tattoos, locations, ect. Seems to be the real thing. It almost felt like a Robert Rodriguez spoof film written with zero self-awareness.
McCarthy has written some poor scripts in the past but has followed up with good novels. Whales and Men was similarly bad, and in his No Country script Sheriff Bell and Lewellyn teamed up to take down Chigur in final shootout that kind of reminded me of Cage and Cusack teaming up in Con-Air.
So surprising to hear he actually wrote that stuff. The manuscript will unify and heighten our conception of the McCarthyverse, as well as his missteps, and will go down as his masterpiece. Seems like his writing is getting more and more commercially profitable—which is fine—but sometimes not as fun to bathe in.
